Yale Refuses to Install Student's Art Project Without Disclaimer

Associated Press: Yale: 'Abortion' art won't be displayed without disclaimer, by John Christofferson:

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Yale University said Monday it will not install an art project by a student who claims to have filmed herself inducing repeated abortions unless she includes a disclaimer saying it is a work of fiction.

Yale also said an instructor and an adviser made "serious errors of judgment" in letting the project go forward.

Aliza Shvarts' work was described last Thursday in a story in the Yale Daily News. She told the newspaper she artificially inseminated herself "as often as possible" while taking herbal drugs to induce miscarriages.
